Covid-19 Cases At 2,669 In Past 24 Hours On Island Of Ireland.

The Department of Health has confirmed 1,578 new cases of Covid-19, here in the Irish Republic, over the past 24 hours.

There are 484 virus patients in our hospitals, latter who have tested virus positive, up 25 since yesterday. Of these 73 are in intensive care, down one over the past 24 hours.

The number of people hospitalised with Covid-19 has risen by some 44% over the last 14 days.

HSE chief executive Mr Paul Reid has warned: “Time for us all to hit the reset button. (1). If unvaccinated, you’re at higher risk, resulting in a disproportionate impact. Do the right thing. (2). For the rest of us, time to do the basics well again. Both of the above work.”

A quarter of the country’s ICU beds are now being used to treat people with Covid-19, which in turn disrupts the regular care that can be provided to those who are very ill within the Irish State.

In Northern Ireland, their Department of Health has further confirmed yet another 1,091 cases of the virus within the same 24 hour period.

This morning there were 347 Covid-positive patients in northern hospitals, of whom 34 were in intensive care units.
Sadly, 3 further deaths of patients, who had previously tested positive for Covid-19, have also been reported.
